Tim Matthews doesn’t just know cars. Tim Matthews LOVES getting curious people involved and learning about cars.
He has a way of getting you to feel the joy he feels when talking about anything automotive. Which makes him the perfect curator for the Speedway Motors Museum of American Speed. It’s a position that’s given Tim the privilege of seeing and working with a host of extraordinary cars from extraordinary people.
Take Dick Landy’s altered wheelbase Dodge, for example. Hearing Tim talk about the car, its significance and history...it takes you right back to the golden age of drag racing.
Tim talks about the AJ Watson display, the story of Dave Crane’s Bantam Coupe, Jim Matuszak’s restored Ramchargers Demon Funny Car, 1960s drag racing changes and more. He also shares his personal automotive history and how he’s progressing on his own Model A project.
